Report lodged over Madani Village Development Committee
Zulkarnaian said although Umno has been in Sabah for a long time, it is now in the opposition. 
Kota Kinabalu: Gerakan Kuasa Rakyat Malaysia (G57) has lodged a police report against the Ministry of Rural and Regional Development (KKDW) led by Datuk Seri Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamid over its decision to expand the Madani Village Development Committee (JKDM) to Sabah without the consent of the Sabah Government.

G57 Chairman Datuk Zulkarnain Mahdar said establishing JKDM is an attempt by the Umno President to bully the Sabah government and its people.

“This police report is made as protest against the disrespectful actions of the Umno Minister. If this matter is not dealt with properly, there is a fear that the dispute will spread to the grassroots.

“There are already disputes regarding the overlapping of powers involving the Village Security and Development Committee (JKKK) and JKDM,” he said.

“Malaysia was officially formed on Sept. 16, 1963 involving the Federation of Malaya, Singapore, Sarawak and North Borneo (Sabah) through the terms of the MA63 agreement.

“On what grounds was the JKDM established without the obtaining the consent of the Sabah State Government beforehand?” he told a press conference, Tuesday.

Zulkarnaian said although Umno has been in Sabah for a long time, it is now in the opposition. 

He questioned if it is logical for Zahid to ask the blessing of Umno Sabah President Datuk Seri Bung Moktar, while the Sabah Chief Minister is sidelined in making decisions involving the State’s administrative affairs.

“Sabah is currently controlled by GRS (Gabungan Rakyat Sabah) and PH (Pakatan Harapan). What if Prime Minister Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim comes to Sabah and only gives aid to Pakatan Harapan supporters only?

“If I recall Communications Minister Fahmi Fadzil in his recent trip to Sabah wore his Ministry uniform and not his party’s. The rakyat are uneasy with this biased approach by Zahid.”
